Marbella FC Aims for Third Place in League Standings

This Sunday, Marbella FC will host Águilas FC at La Dama de Noche in their final league match. A draw would be enough for Marbella to secure the third spot in the league standings. In fact, in the four previous matches where Marbella faced the now-defunct Águilas CF, the result was a draw. Marbella FC only needs one point to secure the third place in the league standings.

Advantages of Securing Third Place

Securing the third place would give Marbella an advantage in the first playoff round in case of a draw after the two matches. It could also help them in the second round if they face a fourth or fifth-ranked team, making it crucial to secure this position.

Águilas FC’s Ambitions

This Sunday’s opponent, Águilas FC, no longer has a chance to fight for the playoffs, but they are aiming to qualify for the Copa del Rey. However, their qualification also depends on other results. The Murcian team will come to Marbella with two familiar faces to the Marbella fans, defender Góngora and forward Francis Ferrón, who left a mark during their time with Marbella.

Short History Between the Two Teams

The history between the two teams is quite short as they have only faced each other in the first round match. However, Marbella did coincide with the now-defunct Águilas CF for three seasons. The last match against this team took place in the 2009/10 season, a season that both teams would rather forget as they both ended up losing their league status. Águilas ended up last and Marbella second to last.

Recalling the Last Encounter

In September 2009, Marbella hosted the Murcian team at the Municipal de San Pedro Alcántara. The match had everything, goals, expulsions, and a standout player in the form of winger Adri Ruiz, who is now a player for UD San Pedro. The match ended in a 3-3 draw. Despite playing with one less player, Marbella managed to draw with a goal from the Malaga winger to close the score at the definitive 3-3.

Previous Seasons’ Results

In the 2007/08 and 2006/07 seasons, both matches ended in a goalless draw, while in the 2005/06 season, the match ended in a 1-1 draw. The Marbella goal was scored by Santi Moreno and Marbella ended with one less player due to the expulsion of Apoño.
